5 star ratingFantastic expereince My husband and I did this one day cruise a few weeks ago during a trip to South Australia and had a wonderful day. The cruise takes you down the Murrary River, through the barrage (which was covered in New Zealand fur seals) and through the Coorong National Park. We were lucky to do the cruise on a beautiful calm and sunny day which made it even more special. Seeing the Murray River full of water was great after so many years of drought.

We were particularly impressed with the guide who captained the boat and provided the commentary. He was very knowledgeable, good humoured and friendly. He led the group to an important Aboriginal site during the cruise and provided interesting information about the local Indigenous poeple and their culture. We saw evidence of their occupation of that place in the sand dunes in the form of large areas of shell and rocks that had been used as tools.

The other stop we made was also through the sand dunes to the Southern Ocean. It was a great experience to stand on see the roaring surf crashing on to the beach which was empty bar our cruise group. The only annoyance was the millions of mozzies that decended on us!

The cruise includes an excellent lunch of cold meats and salad with a brad roll, cheese and crackers, followed by afternoon tea with homemade bicsuits.

I highly recommend this cruise if you're visiting this area.

5 star ratingExcellent! Highly recommended. Go now while the birds are there in their thousands. The trip we did on the Spirit of the Coorong runs for six hours on a Sunday. It was fabulous. I booked months in advance and it was full (it's a small boat).

Although cold and windy, we sat upstairs the whole time in order to maximise our view and our bird watching experience. This involved a woolly hat, scarf, gloves and three layers under a thick waterproof jacket which was required when the occasional full face of water was received! It was worth it as we would have seen thousands of birds .. black swans, pelicans, various types of cormorants, waders and birds of prey. Most people sat downstairs where it was warmer and a lot less windy and I reckon they missed out because they didn't have the gear.

The captain was friendly and knowledgeable about the area and the bird life. There were two stops, both fascinating in terms or Indigenous history, landscape and flora and fauna. The views are stunning.

It isn't always like this. A few years ago there were hardly any birds. Now they are there in the thousands and it's a wonderful experience to behold.

Lunch and morning tea is provided .. simple but adequate fare. Lunch is provided in little lunch boxes. My lettuce flew away given that I chose to be outdoors in a gale but it was worth it to see the birds!
